Ok Ok sorry I didn't mean to hate on all you liberal arts degree muther fers. I know that it must have been as much work as the rest of us. I know when I was graduating from the college of agriculture I thought man it sure would have been tough taking those three theatre classes to complete my english degree. I mean what is harder than analyzing Shakespeere's works. Thats it, I've turned into what I hate the most, a smartass with a chip on my shoulder. I'm struggling with this process, my only outlet is to take it out on those that are in better situations than myself. I'm angry, I'm not going to pretend I'm not. I got rejected from my alma matter. My stupid fing LSAt was 2 points above their fing median. Now I have to move 2 hours away. Why because I don't fit into the grand scheme of things for my alma matter. I love that they sent me fund raising shiznit three days after rejecting me. Yes, please let me give you money, all I want is to sue you some day to pay you back. This is it, I've become angry. I'm angry that these idiots that call themselves adcomms can't get past the black and white numbers that are in front of them. I'm motivated, for all the wrong reasons. I've developed a me against the world complex ever since I was rejected from every school in my state. I'm done with it all. I could care less about these institutions, I just got my diploma in the mail. I think I will hang it in my circular filing cabinet (office rip off). I payed 20 grand for that piece of paper, what a joke. The education system is a joke, I suppose that law school will be the same. Angry, bitter, and angry that I'm bitter. Peace out.
Last thing you need is a lecture, but you're getting one anyway. At least a small one. In bullet point format.
1) Shake that chip; it'll just weigh you down.
2) Sleep in your bed - you made it. I'm sleeping in my 2.095 bed - it isn't so bad. At least I have a bed.
3) Maybe you should spend some time away from this site, and away from reminders of all those other schools that didn't accpet you. They didn't want you, so you're not going there. Whining about it is just like waving some entitlement flag. Don't even bother dealing with it; just move on and focus on where you can go. If those schools aren't good enough for you, you can either kick a55, as the other dude suggested, and transfer up, or else you can forego law school entirely and become a farmer or something.
4) I know about bitterness - I'm the king of bitterness, and for no good reason. But something I learned a long time ago is this: Bitterness is EXTREMELY unattractive. People don't want to hear it. If the bitterness helps motivate you, fine, but you'd do better to keep it inside - letting it out is like losing your temper - no good can come of it. And make sure you offset it every now and then with a bit of gratitude. I know very little about you, but I do know that, in the big picture, you're an EXTREMELY lucky person. The fact that you're posting here about your law school decisions means that you're doing a lot better than about 4 billion other people.
